Wanted: Gardens for the Tour

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Do you know of a garden that stops walkers and slows down drivers with its distinctive design and beauty? Are you an avid gardener whose best efforts peak in the summer sun?  We are looking for you.

The Woodinville Garden Club is currently scouting gardens for the Annual Tour of Gardens scheduled for July 2012.

The geographical area is primarily Woodinville, but nearby areas of English Hill, Bothell, Kirkland and Redmond may also be considered.

The size of a garden is less important than horticultural interest, general design, location, accessibility and parking.

Contact information for your garden, or a friend’s, or even an address of an attractive landscape that you’ve seen is all that is necessary to start the process.

The garden selection committee looks for a combination of five or six gardens that are diverse and convenient, with something to appeal to the beginning gardener as well as the seasoned one.

Garden owners who participate in the tour are provided with a team leader/mentor, are invited to the Club Pre-Tour of Gardens, and join in the festivities at the After-Party Celebration.  Any person whose suggested garden is chosen for the Tour will be rewarded with four tickets to the 2012 Tour of Gardens.
